Option to disable seriesPicker for jqPlot #3316

Use case:
Using Widgetize-Plugin to display certain widgets on a website:

<div id="widgetIframe">
<iframe width="100%" 

This widget should be a limited version of the real piwik widgets, so you want to disable other series for the graph. Currently there is no option to disable the series picker in jqPlot, it is always activated as long as there are other series types for the requested graph.

I am aware of the fact that the URL can be manipulated to show other graph types. This is not important as the end user is assumed to not be able to do it. On the other hand, this could be prevented by apache rules for example.

This patch allows to set request parameter "seriesPicker" to 0 to disable the seriesPicker.


Please review


The implementation just worked for evolution graphs. Pie charts overwrite the settings in core/Controller.php.
New implementation sets selectableColumns in core/ViewDataTable/GenerateGraphData and affects all types of graphs.
This is a new patch which doesn't revert the old changes. Please tell me if a patch with reverts is needed.


Attachment: Correct patch!

Please review the patch to apply the best solution.

Also update & add the new parameter in the Analytics Widgets doc.

parameter name should be "showSeriesPicker" ?


matt, how can I update the doc? Shall I review the patch again or do you mean somebody else?
